Fear of Having Paper in Mouth

by Nate
(Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

I have an extreme fear of having paper in mouth, or wood in my mouth. So extreme that I begin to shake when it gets near my mouth.

Because of this, I cannot seal envelopes, lick stamps, use paper napkins or cups or eat Popsicles, lollipops, corn dogs, or other things on wooden sticks.
My girlfriend often ridicules me for bringing plastic and metal chopsticks to Oriental restaurants in favor of the wooden pairs provided. Is there a name for my phobia? Can it be cured?
